Stella is a 3 year old, female, Australian Kelpie mix. She weighs about 30lbs. Stella has up to date vaccinations, is spayed, and mircochipped. Stella has a good grasp on basic commands such as, sit, down, wait, kennel up, and others we have needed. Stella currently spends most of her time in an isolated environment. She is house-trained and roams her apartment for a large portion of the day. She walks on a leash majority of the time but prefers to be off-leash. Stella is looking for a new home to allow her to run free, patrol a property, and be an active dog.

Stella enjoys being outside, dog parks, and pleasing her owner. Stella loves to cuddle up on the couch and soak up all the attention she can receive. She is very good about only chew/destroying what is hers: toys, cow hooves, and bully sticks. She is very affectionate and loving.

While majority of the time Stella is a fantastic pup, all pups have their imperfections. Stella is protective of her and her owners space. We haven’t had a problem with biting, but she does have a loud, persistent bark if she feels threatened. Stella also suffers from general anxiety which can make car rides stressful for her. Being a herding breed as she is, she does have a high drive from rodents and things that scurry along the ground, including cats. Stella does not get along well with small children; they move too unpredictably for her. Even though Stella has some areas of progress to be made, it has been noticed that good behavior thrives when she gets enough exercise and time outside.

Stella is a very loving pup and appears to be a velcro dog; perfect for a single or a retired couple that has time for her. She does require a bit extra care than your traditional easy-going pup, so no first-time dog owners. Stella is very good at testing the alpha-beta boundary so a confident, experienced dog owner would be perfect for her.

Stella lives in Beaverton, OR, and we are willing to travel a reasonable amount to meet the perfect family. We are asking $200 adoption fee, Stella comes with all of her favorite things; bed, kennel, blankets, and toys.
